We All Lose: Obama's Legacy And What It Means For A Trump Presidency

After eight years in office, Barack Obama leaves our nation with a weakened Constitution that has been dealt one crippling blow after another by court rulings and government overreach... and endless wars abroad, and with a citizenry more broken and oppressed than ever.

Senate Democrats Prepare For Their 2017 Theatrical Debut As Confirmation Hearings Loom

Starting Tuesday Americans will be subjected to what will feel like endless hours of torture as Senate Democrats get their opportunity to question Trump cabinet appointees.  Given that Republicans control a 52-48 majority in the Senate and that Democrats eliminated the 60-vote threshold in 2013, the Democrat theatrical displays will ultimately amount to nothing more than an attempt to discredit and shame Trump's appointees but should be fun nonetheless.

US Aristocracy Panics That Maybe Trump Is Serious

Trump still hasn’t - now just days before entering the White House - reversed himself regarding his intention to improve relations with Russia. Becoming even more hostile toward Russia is almost a unanimous goal of the U.S. aristocracy. They’re thus rebelling against him, in their ‘news’ media, and they won’t stop trying to cripple his Presidency unless and until he relents on this, turns around, and continues, ever-hotter than before, their (under Obama, increasing) ’Cold War’ against Russia.

North Korea Warns Of ICBM Launch "At Any Time, Anywhere"

Following North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's New Year’s message that preparations for a test-launch of ICBMs were in the 'final stage', and president-elect Trump's response "it won't happen!" a Foreign Ministry spokesman warned, as cited by KCNA news agency, "the ICBM will be launched anytime and anywhere determined by the supreme headquarters of the DPRK."

Hypernormalisation

During the last 20 years of the Soviet Union, everyone knew the system wasn’t working, but as no one could imagine any alternative, politicians and citizens were resigned to pretending that it was. Eventually this pretending was accepted as normal and the fake reality thus created was accepted as real, an effect which Yurchak termed “hypernormalisation.” Looking at events over the past few years, one wonders if our own society is experiencing the same phenomenon.

The False Economic Recovery Narrative Will Die In 2017

The false recovery narrative will indeed die in 2017, and it will be because the globalists WANT it to die while nationalists are at the helm. This is perhaps the biggest con game in recent history; with conservatives as the fall guy and the rest of the public as the gullible mark.

"Friends, Long Live" Duterte Tells Russian Navy, Hopes Moscow Will Become Philippines' "Ally And Protector"

"We welcome our Russian friends. Anytime you want to dock here for anything, for play, for replenish supplies or maybe our ally to protect us," said Duterte to members of the Russian Navy. At one point the Philippine leader looked out from the ship's deck and pumped his fist in the air: "Friends, long live!" He added: "That's from the heart; I hope you can come back more often."

Judge Denies Bail For Facebook-Four Who Tortured White Chicago Teen

A judge denied bail Friday for the four people who are accused of torturing an 18-year-old man with special needs and streaming it live on Facebook. The so-called 'Facebook-Four' - Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanishia Covington, 24; were each charged with four felonies each including 'hate crime'.

How The US Could Win A Trade War With China

Both countries would lose in a full-blown trade war, but it is the United States that has the upper hand. Trump understands this, which is why he is pushing China to get a better deal for America. If China also understands it’s in a weaker position, it will be able to avoid a lose-lose scenario.

Is Liberal Democracy An Endangered Species?

Donald Trump’s victory represented a rejection of Barack Obama’s America. And whether he succeeds, what is there to cause America to look back with nostalgia on the America Obama came to represent? Our Founding Fathers believed that democracy represented the degeneration of a republic; they feared and loathed it, and felt that it was the precursor of dictatorship. They may have been right again.
